and gay marriage rather than the prophetic teaching that's i go unite us like climate change or meeting the needs of the world's poor. >> we've heard a lot of talk about cardinal o'malley from boston. he is 68 years old, credited with cleaning up scandal there's palm beach as well as boston. another organization has been reluctant to post names of offending priests on their website. but there is at least one article that refers to a dozen or so cardinals they believe should not be participating and part of the statement from the daily beast article says as cardinals arrived in rome to choose a flew pontiff, victims of sexual abuse have laid out their case against the top contenders and say even the best options are tainted by the global scandal. do you believe even the best options are tainted? or perhaps there is hope that the person who emerges, a person who come from behind that scarlet curtain there will perhaps bring the church to the next necessary point? >> well, the holy spirit works in mysterious ways and i can't say whether or not the church can fully recover from the abuse sc
the truly repressing challenges of our day. the climate change that affects all of us is what we are talking about. not devices like sexuality. >> chris jansing, let me bring you back in. we hear the bells, see the thick white smoke. the first couple of seconds appeared gray. ed with been there before with uncertainty but can could not be more clear where we are here from the exports you have spoken with, i'm seeing many priest and analysis from your show earlier today, what message does this send that five ballots, two days later, we have a new head of catholic church? >> i think a lot of people are surprised they have come together this quickly. on the other hand, remember, they did not have a period of mourning or a funeral for a pope who had died. once they came to rome, all of these cardinals could concentrate on the subject at happened. and that was, they knew they were here to elect a new pope. and you can just imagine what it is like inside that room right now. let's just go over what has happened. they would have gone over those ballots and they are burning them. but at the same tim
having rand paul who ended up saying the republican party needed a change and change in a way, ad hearing mort to the constitution. taking up the charges his father had. >> it sounds like the different factions inside the party are very much on display at the conference. >> reporter: they are. and of course, rand paul does represent what his father brought in particularly talked about the filibuster that he led on drones on the u.s. senate recently. but overall, the republican party is still the same republican party that you would have come to cpac in 2010, 2009, 2011. this is not a party that seems deterred by its second straight presidential loss. >> what are these panels they have going on? >> reporter: well, the one behind me has to do about benghazi and the aftermath. there is another panel about shooting the republican consultants and people who got the election wrong. some have some very humorous name but they are all on a host of different political topics and they're pretty fascinating to watch, actually. >> mark murray, our senior political editor from cpac. thank you. >>> let'
about those unemployed over -- >> diskournled. >> what is it? 27 weeks or so? >> that's not changing a whole lot and the real negative in the report was that the amount of people who dropped out of the workforce, meaning part of the reason why the rate went down is because fewer people technically working and just because they're not working doesn't mean they don't exist in the country and this i think is going to be a long-term structural issue in this economy, not one that's amenable to short fixes. fwher a short transition of people making stuff to doing stuff. >> we have talked about the notion of the unemployment rate and what that means and getting some of those incredibly low numbers of the past. we are a different country now. >> it will be a long time and giving critics of current policy fodder but i'm not sure this is a government issue as much as this is a general issue. >> thank you. >> thanks. >> great pleasure. following the big decision of the vatican today. the cardinals decided when they'll begin selecting the next pope. the conclave will begin next tuesday, march 12
obtaining a nuclear weapon. not just to contain, but to prevent. do you foresee, martin, any change from the administration towards iran either in action or tone? >> i would imagine that the administration does not want any change for the time being. and i would just like to add to your introduction. i'm not sure it is true to say israel trust the united states completely. they need to say that they do and they need to believe the united states because they are still -- that serves a lot of questions being asked and that is one of the key issues that the two leaders will be discussing. netanyahu will be asking obama, prove to me, show me, that you really will take military action if necessary, if economic sanctions and diplomacy do work then you can stop iran from getting a nuclear bomb. israel really is an skoesten shl issue. that is a question in israel's mind. whether the united states will change its policies at the moment, of course, that will depend on progress in iran. and there is real progress. the question is in iran, how close are they actually to in terms of enriching uranium
was about the, perhaps change of tone in washington. but today at cpac, you had kelly focusing most of her speech on benghazi. mitch mcconnell calling for a repeal of obama care. now the president is back giving speeches as well. has anything really change? >> you mentioned the split screen and that is the perfect visual screen. they are past even other, each in their own portion of the screen. rae not needing anywhere in the middle to xin ever combine the two pictures. president obama asking for more revenue to come in. more government spending. republicans very much want to cut government spending. we keep hearing talk of a grand bargain. not seeing any progress toward that at this point. >> chris, republican senators reportedly asked the president in one of these closed door meetings to tone down political attacks. we'll hear from president obama in just a few moments. do you expect the tone to be any different than it has been from either side? >> well, i find it kind of amusing when the republicans suggest the president has been too harsh with them. if you look at the scope of the pro

fared much better. and the report also suggests using more hollywood celebrities to help change perceptions. and it plans to rip a page from the obama play book by launching a complete revamp of digital technology. senior editor mark murray is here with more on what this means and what this does not mean, necessarily. what, first of all, what can we glean from this report about the direction that priebus now wants to take the gop? >> well, this is about a party trying to find its bearing after losing two straight presidential elections and not winning the popular vote in five out of the past six elections. one of the guide posts that priebus and the report lays out is to say, look, let's follow the pattern that republican governors across the country have been able to do. these governors are having a lot of successful there are 30 across the country. we follow their path and not the federal one, that is a better path to success. however, the one point is that a lot of those republican governors were all elected in 2009 and 2010 at a time when the unemployment rate was about 10%.
of the party a new reason to say, it hasn't changed. >> that was nbc's kelly o'donnell joining me there. deputy political editor, dominionco, at a time when they are trying to make a go at improving their image with latinos, then this happens. are they shouting him down on capitol hill yet? >> reporter: we've already heard from house speaker john boehner and the republican national committee chairman who have both disavowed this statement and say it doesn't stand for the party, completely distancing themselves from don young but it is a problem. the fact that republican leaders are now going to have to disavow this kind of statement. it is once again a reminder of everything that had happened during the 2012 election with so many of the bombastic comments that got them into place in the first place. it reminded me, bobby jindal was at the rnc meeting saying we cannot be the stupid party. we cannot have people saying things that are bombastic and bizarre and they're going to get us in this trouble. and here we go again. >> what else is congressman young said today? >> well, he stepped back from
from newtown and made a direct plea to the american people to speak up and push for change. >> i read an article in the news just the other day wondering is washington, has washington missed its opportunity because as time goes on after newtown, somehow people start moving on and forgetting? let me tell you, the people here, they don't forget. grace's dad is not forgetting. her mom hasn't forgotten. the notion that two or three months after something as horrific as happened in newtown happens and we've moved on to other things, that's not who we are. that's not who we are. i want to make sure every american is listening today. less than 100 days ago that happened. and the entire country was shocked. and the entire country pledged we would do something about it and this time would be different. shame on us if we've forgotten. >> the president then urged congress to act now on gun legislation. >> tears aren't enough. expressions of sympathy aren't enough. speeches aren't enough. we've cried enough. we've known enough heartbreak. what we're proposing is not radical. it is not taking away
for them is insane. i mean, they keep talking about we need to make cosmetic changes or change the way we talk about things. no. they need to change the way they think about things and vote about things. >> let me direct our audience to vice president joe biden. let's listen in. thank you both for joining us. >> every single time you stand and recount what happened it brings it all back. it brings it all back like a very bad nightmare, but your speaking out, diane, and so many survivors like you are literally saving the lives of so many other women who god willing will be able to avoid the abuse that you had to put up with. i want to thank all the advocate who is are here today. i got a chance to meet in my office with some of you a little bit earlier. not only those on the stage who i again had a chance to meet with but the many women out in the audience as i look out and see some familiar faces like pat rus and ellie smeil and paw let sullivan moore from -- from my home state and so many others. you know, those of you who have been around a while with me know that i quote my father all
. there was no joint press conference but did he meet with him privately. was not to change his mind but to have a frank discussion about the differences in the two sides at this point almost 12 years into the war in afghanistan. let's talk about this incident yesterday. you're right. the timing couldn't have been worse. right now afghans are responsible for security in about 90% of the country. that's what we're told by both sides. the other 10% still remains lethal lethally dangerous. this happened in wardak. a man wearing an official uniform of national security forces walked into there briefing by u.s. and afghan special forces and opened fire. it was a furious exchange of gun fire after that in which the gunmen himself was killed but not before two u.s. service members and three afghan special forces soldiers were themselves killed. many others wounded. some grievously, we were told. this is the third violent incident in the last three days. at this time when as everybody has been pointing out, the afghans are getting ready to assume control of security for their entire country. that is the
and afghanistan. >> michael, sum this up for us. how has this changed a generation of americans who was known in iraq for ten years. >> i think what it has done is made many people circumspect about policing the world. i think it has made many people recognize that we don't serve our best interests or the interests of those we're trying to help when our first response is to open a base somewhere or to launch a military invasion. i think in a word, restraint is the lesson that we take away from what has gone on. >> i thank you all for your counsel today. a ten-year anniversary of the iraq war. michael smerconish, thank you very much. right here in studio, congressman patrick murphy. thank you all four for discussing this with us today. for more on the ten-year anniversary of the start of the iraq war, be sure to watch the documentary, hubris, selling the iraq war. it airs at 9:00 eastern on msnbc. >>> coming up, president obama takes off on his first trip to israel as commander-in-chief. our first read team says it is a reminder of one of the big failures of his first term, moving toward middl
year. later this month, teacher layoffs and changes to afterschool programs start. agriculture programs for the poor affected and cuts could start affecting opening a fishing season in federal waters, as well. the next month, the cuts really hit. furloughs of government workers take effect. could result in flight cancelations, delayed meet inspections. national parks may not open. and as april 15th arrives, tax day, of course, there will be less help for taxpayers, possibly refund delays in tax refund checks. what are the chances, ken, all of this gets fixed by april 15th? >> i would say fairly slim. i think that there's a real possibility that the cuts, the sequestration cuts could become sort of a baseline and as we see as more people see effects of some of these impacts that we just talked about, actually impacting their daily lives, and there emerges potentially some outcry over that, then congress could address the things in a piecemeal fashion and see we that plan sort of manifesting itself. house republicans talking about passing a continuing resolution that would allow the gover
happened. so little has changed on the ground that he lost the support of the palestinian people. their reaction to president obama today ranged from indifference to outright hostility. he was well received in the palestinian headquarters in ramallah but outside the headquarters, you only had to go a few hundred yards and you would have found over the past few days in ramallah, almost daily demonstrations by palestinians against the president, calling him the president of the israelis. they said you're no -- the refrain among the palestinian protesters was you're no friend of the palestinians. you're a friend of the israelis. so mending fences with the israelis was very much on his general. just as important was mending fwenss the palestinian people. he said the right things to the palestinian leaders, the palestinian president mahmoud abbas apparently made some come promises in terms of his preconditions with the israelis. he said he would not call for an open settlement freeze. that was one of the demands of the palestinians. so some movement among the palestinian leadership th
, 37%. a significant change there. does the court pay any attention to number like this? >> well, they are human beings. they do read the press. they protest they don't get influenced by this kind of thing. it is a little bit of an ivory tower profession but not completely. these are practical men and women who have come out of practical affairs to sit on the courts. this will influence them. it will probably not be reflected in any big way in the formal decision but down deep inside them, what people, what their friends and neighbors think, will influence them. and i think it is interesting that john roberts recently in several decisions has shown that he is not as conservative as he was predicted to be. and i think things like what the public thinks and what his relatives think and his colleagues, all influence not only him but the others. whether they will admit it or not. >> all right. thank you all. i greatly appreciate you being on the panel. thank you for your time. >>> coming up, mark zuckerberg using his millions to jump into a political debate. will he be able to lean o
a change of perspective. >> and to that point, a change in perspective, you have rob portman's son who is gay and mr. portman coming out in support of same-sex marriage. justice roberts' own cousin was there for the oral arguments. she's gay as well. she said she believes her cousin will do the good thing, whatever that means. but nevertheless the president in 2012 bringing it back to his own family which he's done so many times when he supported different issues. >> and i think that's what most americans are doing. i'm friends with an historian named martin at princeton who wrote a book on black mountain school of poetry and i didn't realize that he was struggling to just get benefits for his significant other. he is probably going to get married just so he can make sure that he has health benefits for the person he loves of all of us are touched by some story. so we're seeing america evolve just as before 1920, women didn't have the right to vote. the jim crow laws in the 1950s and '60s. it has gone step by step to change the consciousness of america. and president obama has not nece
problem. i think too many segments view us as intoll rat, insensitive. it is up to us to change that and made up of policies, plus principles plus politics. i think there are principles good and solid. i think our policies, i think we have a lot to learn from various communities in terms of how we shape our policies so they make sense and don't appear harsh and politics disastrous with too many segments of the population. that's fixable but i think unfortunately too many times we have had tone and tenor and rhetoric that's divisive and need to get away from that and talk about thing that is really are aspirational and optimistic for segments of the population that are looking for viable national republican party that has a different alternative than what the republicans were offering. >> thank you both for joining me. >> thank you. >>> governor romney also said the sequester would not have happened if he was sitting in the oval office. well, now, the sequester is officially in effect and members of president obama's cabinet are warning the impact is already felt. here's what hom
but that's likely to change as we move in to the evening rush hour. the airports like you talked about just a real mess right now. more than 1,400 flights canceled. hundreds more delayed and that's something as the accumulation total grows, so will the number of flights will be affected. schools out here today f. there's a good sign to this, it's the fact kids are getting a play day. first snow day of the year here and just two weeks away from spring so that's kind of interesting. also, for farmers in the midwest, they see this snow as a blessing. the melt off really providing them with some hope for coming crops after what's been a very difficult drought season so if you look at the good side of this snow, that's about it. the bad side is, it's going to be a mess for the next several days. >> jay, another portion of the bad here is some of these coastal areas and areas hit by hurricane sandy will also be impacted. i was talking with a colleague living in jersey. their power company already also called them saying brace for possible flooding and power outages as you mentioned. >> reporter:
approach to syria. it will be interesting to see if those calculations change once the trip is over. >> you mentioned the international community. the pressure on the president now. not just coming from international leaders like king abdullah. back here, senator john mccain has joined with senator carl levin to urge the president to action. he sent a letter to president obama and in that letter he said in part, the longer the conflict in syria goes on, the worse its consequences are becoming. the potential use of chemical weapons only makes the case for greater action more compelling and urgent. what's the likelihood that we might see more american involvement in syria? >> i think those are two calculations. on the one hand, everyone recognizes and the president said again in the press conference that in fact the longer this goes on, the greatter fragmentation inside syria. the hard he it is to put it back together again when the conflict ends and assuming that assad steps aside. however, translating that political imperative into discreet military steps and actions is actually quite diffi
that there was a lack of political courage on all parties at that point in the early 1990s. but times have changed. times have changed since 2004 when john kerry didn't even support marriage equality. we as presidential nominee for democratic party. we are now in 2013. we have a president of the united states who supports marriage equality. majority of americans support marriage equality. more members of congress are coming out to say this. in supreme court there is an inclination times have changed and they are coming to grips with that reality. >> let me read what our first teams say about speaker bainer. speaker boehner and house republicans spent millions to dough fend the act in court after the obama administration said it would no longer do so. despite this defense, boehner's office was silent as court heard oral arguments and prop 8 case. but today michael steele says a law's constitutionality is determined by courts, not by the department of justice as long as the obama administration refuses to exercise responsibility, we will. that is the latest response from speaker boehner there, aaron
